John McCain has to pick Sarah Palin for VP. Am I right? Barack "Messiah v. 2.0" Obama picked the complete opposite of a change VP in Joe Biden, who I think is a decent guy but is a blowhard. It's such a slam to all the Hillary voters, all 18 million of them. I learned this quickly in marriage, don't piss off a married woman. They never forget anything, and usually bring up something later that you thought they forgot or had forgiven you for doing. This might be the easiest pick in years for the GOP, which is why they can still screw it up.
Where's McCain weak? His party and his age. He can't run away from his party, despite his ads never mentioning the word "republican". He can offset his age problem with a vibrant, non-grey haired woman. How many Hillary supporters might this peel off? Maybe an extra 5% of them who are still waffling over whether to vote Obama, vote McCain or stay home? Maybe just enough to swing around some married, female Independents that prove critical in elections. Maybe just enough in Ohio, Michigan, Virginia, etc. Bush increased his share of the female vote from 43% to 48%, and that was the key to winning the election. I like McCain. I supported him in 2000, and would have preferred 8 years under a McCain presidency to a Bush presidency. I just think he missed his moment.
Obama is going to win. That is why I have been reading The Court of the Red Tsar. When the netroots/socialist revolution comes, I'll be ready to denounce you all, bwahahahahahahahaha!!!!
